TINY DANCERS

We believe the younger years are critical in a child’s development. Care is taken to not only teach correct skills, but also to
instill a love for dance and music. Our classes teach musicality and large motor and listening skills in addition to basic dance
technique. We do this with a positive, fun, and creative approach to engage the dancers and help foster a love for dance. Care
is taken to place dancers in the appropriate level class, not only by age, but also by their own development.

Natalia is one of those campers that you'd want to see to

start your day off with a smile. Natalia's bright

personality, welcoming smile, and warm hugs brought

smiles and comfort to everyone she came across campers

and staff alike. Natalia’s parents selected Camp SOAR

because of the convenient hours for working families

which included free early drop off hours. Natalia’s favorite

NATALIA part of camp was attending all the off-site field trips and
CEBALLOS VALDEZ getting to know all the counselors.

Cameron and Katye started taking dance lessons when they were just 3 years old
and have never left the program since. These young ladies have put countless

hours of training and dedication into dance classes, and it shows as they are two
of some of the strongest dancers that compete on the team. Throughout the years

they have assisted with many classes and have continued to be wonderful role
models to the younger dancers. Cameron and Katye will be a part of the

HeartBeat family forever, and we're so grateful to watch them train and grow.
